We are marching homeward with the blest,
To that bright, bright world above;
Where our friends are gone and are at rest,
In that world of light and love.

Refrain

Marching home, marching home;
We are marching homeward with the blest.
Marching home, marching home;
We are marching home to rest.

Jesus stands and beckons to us now,
As we falter on the way;
He will save us, if to Him we bow,
Who rules both night and day.

Refrain

Our dear Savior has prepared the way,
Where we all who will may come;
If we serve Him truly day by day,
He at last will bring us home.

Refrain
